The Arles Vincent Van Gogh Foundation

Arles - Cultural place

Vincent van Gogh is an inescapable figure in 20th century art. To this day, his influence continues with artists and his work exerts an unprecedented magnetism on the public. It was precisely in Arles that he produced his finest masterpieces in just fifteen months. The Vincent van Gogh Arles Foundation aims to devote itself to the enhancement of its artistic heritage while questioning the resonance of his work in contemporary art. The perspective of Van Gogh's painting with the work of contemporary artists will reveal a fertile dialogue geared towards questioning and reflection. The Foundation is a dynamic place of exchanges regarding the unfailing link between Van Gogh's work and the city of Arles, as well as a space for discussion and debate on contemporary art and painting.New painting by van Gogh on display: St. Peter's Square at sunset (1887)
